It's Not As Racist As It Sounds. I'm not proud of my tea latte habit, which causes me to waste a lot of my hard-earned money at the Starbucks by my office. But if it hadn't been for my frequent trips, I might have missed out on this behind-the-pastry-case conversation between two Starbucks employees, one of whom is a tall, blond, Germanic-looking guy with an "Ah-nuld" accent, and the other just a regular looking Joe whose first language does appear to be English:
Ah-nuld: I saw a black woman yesterday. Scary.
Joe (with a start, looking around to see if any customers have overheard this): Wait, what?
Ah-nuld: A. Black. Woman.
Joe (clearly confused): Um, okay?
Joe: Oh, do you mean "The Woman in Black"?
Ah-nuld: Yes, that's what I said. It was scary.
Joe: Oooh! Okay!
